Small Creator (Ekphrasis)

Child with a Drawing by Sir Edwin Landseer

Small Creator
by Anthea Cabrestante

This child that is yet to learn oodles
from the nurturing earth
walks by
with her own amateur doodle

And engrossed in an ancient book
with better illustrations
yet unabashed
with how her own looks.

Her limbs and locks are yet to grow
and lengthen
as her knowledge –
but little did she know
in her smallness
what a great creator
she already is.
